Spring has sprung?

Spring seems to be springing, or at least teasing us.

Two beautiful days where I am, and I have hopefully got back into regular running again.

On Saturday I set off for my normal course which is about 6 k and is on the flat beside a river. But then I gazed at the hills and thought, why not? I set off on a longer, quieter route into the hills. I had no clear idea where I was going but the hills and reservoir looked lovely and it was downhill on the way back.

In the end I did 7.32 km in about 40 minutes. Not an amazing distance but much of it was inclines and I was happy to start running for longer. Need to try to make a habit of it.

And back out today for a shortish run in the beautiful sunshine. Will almost make up for the delicious biscuits I baked yesterday.
